View Full Version : Rusty's Acupuncture

12-15-2014, 07:27 PM
Today were at the vet for one of Rustys rehab visits. He's here for acupuncture. In another three weeks we go for physical therapy and swimming.

I am quite proud of him today. He doesn't usually behave well during this. He usually gets fidgety and moves around too much and loses half the needles or just doesn't let her put them in at start. Today he's been behaving quite well sitting on his mat and hardly moving.

Try keeping a Dachshund still for 50 minutes!!!

What a good boy! Jack had that done to him, too, and held very still. That helped him a lot in his recovery. Good boy, Rusty! :cheer3::appl: Good photos, too.

When I look at that second photo I wonder what it feels like.

Oh my goodness! He's all wired up like a science experiment. Poor guy. That looks scary. I hope the acupuncture treatments & rehab will work like magic. He deserves it, esp. being so very brave. Well done, Rusty. You da man! :bigrayz::bigrayz::bigrayz:

I swear this isn't my dog LOL! he normally fights when she wants to pin him and I have to hold him in my lap but last night he relaxed. In the 2nd pic he was getting sleepy, probably tired of sitting up and watching the treat I held in front of him to keep him still, then he laid down.
